Happy Thanksgiving weekend!

What are your Thanksgiving plans? We're heading to Brooklyn to have dinner with our friends, who have a working fireplace (score). Hope you have a delicious day with lots of pumpkin pie and loose pants. :) Meanwhile, here are a few great posts from around the web... xoxo

Smitten Kitchen knows her Thanksgiving foods.

Flirty bow heels.

YAY!!!! Best movie news ever.

A genius eyeliner trick--with scotch tape.

Give your fridge a makeover.

This wedding dress makes me want to get married again.

Awesome little boy's room.

Oooh, salty brownies.

What a funny slimming sweater--your waist would look teeny.

Secret passageway switch.

What? These are pajamas!

Fabric wrapping paper.

Holiday stamps.

And for holiday shopping, here are three big tips, just through Monday:
* J.Crew is 25% off with code SURPRISE.
* Shopbop is 20% off with code BIG EVENT.
* ASOS is 20% off with code HAPPYBLACKFRIDAY.

Have a good one! xoxo

I'm Canadian, so I'm not celebrating, but happy Thanksgiving to you!

Darcie said...

I totally agree with you on the news of a new Before Sunrise movie - I love watching those two!

Rose said...

I live in Brazil, so we do not celebrate this date. We thank you for Christmas. I wish a happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

By the way, I loved your picture! Congratulations!

Take Care,

Rose

Happy Thanksgiving (from Canada). Enjoy. Awesome taxi photo!

Kathrine said...

Unfortunately we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Denmark, but maybe next year I'll just jump right into it and make my own Thanksgiving tradition over here :) the Thanksgiving food sounds delicious, and the idea of a holiday dedicated to things/people to be thankful for seems great to me:)
So Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. I'm sure you will enjoy it to the fullest, but enjoy the food a little xtra this year for us non-celebrating people and I'll be sure to spend some time acknowledging everything in my life to be thankful for!

Thank you for the discount codes!

That wedding dress is unbelievably beautiful. I think it might require some spanx--silk satin is never very forgiving!

Tara Galuska said...

Happy Thanksgiving all:)
I just love that little boys room! It is way nicer than my new apartment and I might steal a couple decorating ideas...like the tree branch.

Happy Thanksgiving Joanna! I was in your neck of the woods yesterday for lunch, was kind of hoping I'd see you and Mr. Toby-the-walker! Maybe next time :)

Enjoy your Thanksgiving by the fireplace Joanna, sounds great. Also, thanks for the amazing finds! I lovelovelove the bow shoes, must try the scotch trick, adore the phone booth door in the little boy's room and I must buy the fabric wrapping paper. A lot of excitement, can you tell? :)

Anne said...

By the way: I'm not giving my fridge a makeover. Are you kidding me? I'm already glad if the rest of my house looks nice!

Joanna Goddard said...

this recipe for salted fudge brownies is great - been making them for years and everyone loves them. i've made them twice this week alone! http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/salted-fudge-brownies

Paula said...

oh I love salty brownies :) thanks for all those links, some are pretty inspiring!

sherryyo said...

Have a great Thanksgiving weekend!

Jill said...

I just read that article about Before Sunrise/Sunset and got so nostalgic that I had to watch Before Sunrise on Youtube in 12 minute increments :)

Also - not sure if you have time to read all these comments, but I've been meaning to say that I would LOVE if you posted (perhaps on a Motherhood Monday?) about transitioning your child's room from a "baby room" to a toddler/kid room. My daughter is 2 and we're thinking about moving her into a big girl bed, but I'm torn with which "look" to go for in her upgraded room. A design post with kids' room pics would be so fun!

Sharayah said...

That eyeliner video rocked my face. Yay.

chelsea said...

Thanks for the link, Joanna! I am so excited about a 3rd Before Sunrise movie! My fave!! Hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving!

Oh wow, I can't believe there is going to be a THIRD before sunrise movie - I'm so excited!

asiajane said...

I love that you mentioned "loose pants." I was thinking my matchstick jeans were feeling a bit too snug on Thanksgiving day-- I should have stuck with loungewear :)

I always enjoy your links, Joanna! I also want to add that as a woman without children I've been surprised to find that I really enjoy your posts about motherhood (motherhood blogs don't usually appeal to me). You do such a great job of writing in a way that seems balanced, sincere, vulnerable and sweet. Great blog (and congratulations to Toby on his first steps - adorable videos)! Stephanie

Jenna said...

Happy Thanksgiving! Loved starting my holiday weekend with these great tips/links! Especially love the eyeliner and organizing your fridge links. Anthropologie always has super cute egg crates.. thinking of picking one up :)

Shannon said...

a little cheaper bow shoes, and still very cute! http://piperlime.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=71213&vid=1&pid=911075&scid=911075002

kitten roar said...

Ajlounyinjurylaw said...

We did the usual, had family over and couldn't stop eating. But it was a great holiday.

Caitlin said...

eyeliner trick? genius. holy cow this makes life so simple

Xeyno said...

The little boy's room is so awesome that even I as an adult would love to live there. :)

We don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in Oz but I sure wish we did. I had my sister, her husband and bub here from NYC during Thanksgiving and not only did we not have a turkey, Sydney turned on the most appalling weather and for their entire stay they didn't see the sun once. I wasn't to blame but I almost felt embarrassed!

Anwen Norman said...

Thank you for the coupon codes!! I just scooped so many lovely things from ASOS. :) http://anwenelizabethphotography.com/2011/11/its-cyber-monday-and-i-gave-in-to-the-brilliance/
